Address empty in Google Maps when searching by business names

Hi all,

My site is having an issue with Geolocation/Google Maps on listings. Users are adding listings with Business Names (Places) which resolve in Google Maps search-box but on the listing site it will be “,” so when you click the location shortcut you get sent to Google Maps searching for ,

If I force users to enter a street address instead, then shortcut opens lat and long on map and not the business itself.

I guess in a nutshell, how can I enable users to add location as a business name so it resolves when clicking the URL/shortcut in listing. Often people want to meet up at a cafe or restaurant or car park of a business.

Many thanks
